Can nonsurgical treatments like lasers substitute for a neck lift?
The answer to this really depends on accurate self assessment here! Generally, if one has just a little bit of neck laxity (loose skin) and a little crepeyness, then a one or two fractionated CO2 or erbium lasers may be a reasonable option. If on the other hand, someone has really a fair amount of sagging, it’s better to save the money for the surgery, in my opinion……and at this point in time. More on treatments for necks.
Kybella which is now FDA approved is a breakthrough for the upper neck area and under the chin ………IF there are fat deposits there. There appears to be tightening of the skin in the treated area as well….although they don’t claim this indication.
None of the nonsurgical treatments for the neck to date, really give a dramatic result in cases where there is a lot of sagging and loose skin, in addition to a fat pad.
Hope this helps, Dr. I
